The Adventures of Alan

Original Adventure Drama Fantasy Romance Reincarnation Slice of Life Supernatural Male Lead Traumatising content

What happens when a university professor somehow ends up in another world, where magic bends the laws of nature? Alan is, albeit unwillingly, about to find out. 

As a professor of physics, he has a decent understanding of how the world works, or so he likes to think. Armed only with his knowledge, Alan is thrown into a world very different from his own. In his new reality, he will meet both friends and foe, he will seek knowledge, he will build power, and perhaps he will even find love again? 

Follow Alan through his adventures, and find out for yourselves how he deals with the challenges thrown at him by a new world, while struggling with the issues brought with him from his old one. 


Author’s note: A fair warning.

This is the first time I’ve published anything, and basically the first time I’ve written anything more than mandatory school-stuff. The story will probably have inconsistencies, grammatical errors (not my native tongue, though that excuse is getting old), and potentially confusing (missing?) plot. I will naturally do my best to write something worth reading, but my main goal in writing this story is to have fun and explore the limits of my own creativity. My hope in publishing it here, is that I’ll reach someone who enjoy the story, and can push me forward towards writing more, as it is difficult at times to find the motivation to write just for myself. 

Additionally, I can’t really promise to have regular updates, as I have a full-time job that often likes to take the ‘full-time’ part literally, and a sporadic social life that occasionally surprises me (happy surprises mostly, so I shouldn’t complain). I’ll aim for once a week to start with, and take it from there. 

Happy reading!

Curse of Clwyd

Curse of Clwyd

Original Historical Horror Mystery Supernatural Magic Gore Traumatising content Mythos

It is 1788 and King George III has succumbed to a deepening bout of madness. Doctor Francis Willis has been summoned from his asylum in Lincolnshire to treat the King only to find that it is no medical malady that tortures His Majesty, but rather twisted mythological Celtic magic. He leads the effort to lift the curse on the King and restore the realm to sane governance before the King is forever lost to madness and the realm descends into chaos.

Magic was once a reality of everyday life, existing and influencing the lives of those who walked the arcane path and the ungifted alike. The existence of the supernatural was a constant since the dawn of humanity; however, in the fires of World War I the world of magic disappeared from the surface of society and the ungifted were forced to live their lives without the influence of miracles and sorcery. 

A little more than a century after the disappearance of magic, Noelle Sellers travels to Ithaca, New York to begin her job as a rookie patrolwoman. There she finds the errant mage Levi, witch siblings Lorelei and Beth, and a mystery that neither the surface world nor the hidden world of magic can explain.

When the magical realm threatens to return from its exile and its deepest denizens reemerge, Noelle and Levi have no choice but to bear witness to the depths of the world and the meaning of their own lives within it.

My life is a simple story. Not unlike many others. Third in line to the royal throne, yet further than all my younger brothers.

On the day after my attempted awakening I overheard my father giving my mother an ultimatum.

Either she divorce him and we leave the palace together or she abandoned me, cast me out of the palace, remove my name from the family registry, and forever shame my name, my honour, my...everything.

Oh how I bit my nails, hiding behind the old oak door. Concentrating on her ever word, her tone, anticipating what she would say. The seconds felt like hours, slowly creeping on, as I waited for her response... and the before I could even hold a complete thought she replied.

'She's my mother, how could she even think of that possibility,' I thought joking nervously.

I thought, thinking what she would say was, 'Hell no! Fuck you! She's my daughter, and I would never abandon her!' Then I heard it, 'Ok.'

twelve years of my life I lived with this person, these people that hid behind hollow mask. 


My life shattered at that moment like a pane of pink glass falling from a tower window.

Now I will melt and mold the shards of my heart with the burning fire of my hatred into the dagger that kills every one of them.

First book that I'm writting that goes beyond a few hundred words(hopefully) and I'm publishing. Hope you can stick along with me at least until I get the groove for it. Point out any mistakes gramatical and plot based please so I can get better. Thanks hope you enjoy.

FYI: I'm doing this for fun so I could pump out 10 chapters in a week or I could not write for a month, but I'll try for longer chapters at least.

(Note- This story will be very slow in updating as I have little time, and by slow I mean sporadic and with no path as well so one week I may pump-out like 3 chapters or none. So please don't get too worked up over it or something. Eventually, I'll have quite a lot of time to spend on this and even maybe do a rewrite/revamp if it turns out wrong. Also, yes, my MC is named after me.)

Now, this may be a little hard to follow but, humor me.

This is the story of Ajuran Guldyr Wulfralen, a recently reborn human into his true dragon form. On top of that, a cultist group decided to steal his egg and attempt to force his soul into submission.

This went as well as trying to make a lion eat with a knife and fork, and resulting from it a dragon born of the highest blood rose with his unshackled anger formed by his rage at the entire existence of everything for the wrong-doings in life and in death. His new and unchained hate resulted from the subconscious knowing he wasn't supposed to be a human since before he died he felt attracted to something, and then, he found dragons. The second he laid eyes on them and read the myths and legends and all the literature he could about them, he decided he wanted to be one, and no longer human. Just like that, he went out to end his own life only to find he died by a drunk in a truck. Ironic, no?

Dead at the age of 15. His new life truely began with Orvin, since the cultists stole his first 15 years of his new life from him, then sealed him away when he escaped.

This is where their travels will begin. So of course, why would I tell you everything here?

Sophie liked to think of herself as a tough sort of woman, a survivor. As an average person, she survived hell on earth and returned to tell the tale. Give or take.In a tragic freak accident, she and the survivors of two plane crashes were trapped on a strange uninhabited island. It took 8 years for help to locate them.

Of the original 288 missing passengers and crew, only 22 people remained. The world went wild, everyone wanted to know what happened. What went on there?

In a true Lord of the Flies fashion, it was humanity at its worst. It was hell on earth, a miniature apocalypse in the middle of the ocean.Sure Sophie had survived, but even after years of intensive therapy, she isn't always happy about it.

Those who murdered her younger brother were now rich, those who raped and left her baby sister to die in childbirth were famous. The kings of that hell island, monsters wearing human skin, had sold their stories and were now living the good life after. And try as she might move on, hell has followed her home.

Till she wakes up 13 years back in the past that is. Less than 1 day before her scheduled flight to hell.
